Hi guys i am looking at buying a new motherboard for my desktop pc and would like your help in finding the best one at a reasonable price. I would like it to have at least i7 and a minimum of 16gb ram and be able to connect 3 internal HDD or even 1 SSD and 2 HDD.
Look forward to your suggestions, nothing above $500 though do have to keep a budget ☺

why that much? what features of a mother board that cost do you need? there are ones for around the $300 mark that will do what you need

Hi ludez, i'm already running a msi 7309 so another msi z170a would be perfect thanks for that. Why i didn't think to see what upgrades msi had to offer is me being lazy. Will see if i can get one through pbtech
